Outside the Box & Book

What is greater than God, more evil than the devil, the poor have it, the rich need it, and if you eat it, you’ll die?

Answer at the end of the post

Oh, Oh, Oh, Pandora

Out of the box
Is where to think
For what is left
Once you’ve opened the thing

A man with
A Fox, A Sheep, And A Stack Of Hay
And a man with
A Fox, a Chicken and a Bag of Feed
Crossing a river
I figured this out
One says to the other
We have to
Stop travelling with foxes

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling

“First think of the person who lives in disguise,
Who deals in secrets and tells naught but lies,
Next tell me what’s always the last thing to mend,
The middle of middle and end of the end?
And finally give me the sound often heard,
During the search for a hard-to-find word.
Now string them together, and answer me this,
Which creature would you be unwilling to kiss?”

Answer at the end of the post

If it made the Book it’s worth a Look

Elaborate worlds
Created and existing
Within a frame
Closed and opened
With a hand

Lune: gym body brain

Exercise each day
And work out
Big brains are sexy

Research has shown that a dexterous brain makes for happier, healthier, people in general. Doing some type of mental exercise, in the form of brain teasers, puzzles or word and number games has been shown to:

  • Boost overall brain activity
  • Increase your memory power
  • Reduce the risk, and slow the decline, of dementia
  • Improve memory and brain processing speed
  • Reduce boredom
  • Improve concentration

Keep me in your memory
Times we played the game
Test me, repeat me, teach me
And I will keep you the same

Weekly Theme:

International Brain Teaser Month

International Brain Teaser Month is focused on mental stimulation which helps to boost brain activity and reinforce memory strength.

  1. I’ve been playing mind games for a long time – so many of the brain teasers are one’s I’ve heard before. The second one was new and I had no idea what the answer was… and then it dawned on me! Shudder! No way I’m puckering up for that!!!!

    1. I live in Finland. I am Australian and a resident of Finland.
      I am human, male. Hetero, but I think I’m labelled cis now.
      I am white, and of average appearance and intelligence.
      The typical stereotype for a serial killer.
      Why do you think I’m from Rome?


  4. Hey there mouse ! Never been to Finland ! However I do have some DNA from Sweden and Finland. I think I am human but sometimes I doubt it. I am male and hetero also. Never been to Australia but will travel there someday. What is a ” cis ” classification ? If memory serves me, I believe serial killers have a very high I.Q. Let’s hope you are not one !
    Rome, yes I thought I saw something on your website that reminded me of Rome. Which is strange also because I have never been to Rome. I am a American and a resident of French Polynesia, aka ( TAHITI ).
    I ALSO AM A BLOGGER. docofthebay.blog marcdbaker WORDPRESS
    Keep writing and I should get notices of your new posts. If you like my blog you can do the same.
    What is your picture with the Purple Stone Moi ! and the purple halo ??

    1. I’ve never done one of those dna, heritage tests. I’d be interested to see the result. I have quite the promiscuous family.
      I think cis is born the gender that you identify as. I could be wrong. Labels change so often.
      Yes let’s hope for the safety if my community I’m not a serial killer 😏
      I’ve been to Rome but it was over ten years ago. Can’t think of anything on my roman on my site.
      Never been to Tahiti. Pictures make it look like a dream scape.
      I’ll have a look.
      I found that pic online years ago. No idea of it’s origin.


  5. if you ever make it down this way….I’ll put another shrimp on the Barbie !! Tahiti is great. I live on the island of RAIATEA. My wife flies back and forth from here to California. I’m coming up on 5 years straight here on RAIATEA.
    This island is called the SACRED ISLAND. Anthropologically, The Hawaiians, The Mauri’s of New Zealand, The Easter Islanders all came from this island. We are dead center in the middle of the Polynesian Triangle. I love the Tahitians, and the French and the Chinese here are all very cool. It is paradise. I have reading to do. Thanks for checking out my Blog ! I assume your first name is NOT Mickey !
    Peace Brother

    1. Perhaps one day. I have to get back to oz first.
      Im coming up on 10 years here in Finland, homesickness growing every year.
      I don’t know the particular island. Guess I have some research to do.
      Strange to think they all came from that area instead of colonising the region.
      Sounds like a diverse population. Always a good thing.
      Of course. I try to check every blog I can. Time allowing.
      My first name isn’t Mickey but it was my nickname growing up.
      Love peace and chicken grease


  6. Say hello to the Man Behind the Curtain when you get back to OZ. I think the Wizard was full of Hot Air ( at the end of the movie !) No home sickness here. Nobody really gives a damn. We get what we give. My wife flies back and forth to California. God Bless her. I told her she can fly as much as she wants as long as I don’t have to leave here. Mickey, forever let us hold your banner high !! Mickey Mouse Club. (probably before your time) I’m here for almost 5 years straight now.
    I knew I found paradise when I quit looking for it ! Do me a favor please ? Just keep being you. I am bored with “normal” people. Take it as a compliment. Some people call me Abby….Abby Normal
    My nickname growing up was ” Hey You “.

    1. Never can trust an old man willing to drop everything to take a teenage girl on a balloon ride to a far away land.
      I know the Mickey mouse club, though I didn’t watch it in it’s initial run. You’re right, I am a but young for that.
      I’m in Finland, most including myself wouldn’t call it paradise.
      Don’t worry, I’ve never been considered normal.
      Abby normal, was that


  7. Yes ! Bingo ! You hit the jackpot ! Mel Brooks, Gene Wilder, Gilda Radner. You picked up on that right away like only another Abby Normal would. It fits with the 4 vagrants on Abbey Road that got run over by fame and fortune.

  8. Paul in the crosswalk barefoot like he was headed for his own wake !. It started that whole ” Paul is Dead” bull s–t . When I worked at the Beverly Hills Hotel in the garage dispatching Limousines, + – 1974… Paul and Linda McCartney were guests at the Hotel and they had a bungalow at the hotel.
    As in “Hey Bungalow Bill “. I had a bell hop deliver a manila envelope with 4 “funny” cigarettes in a little wooden box along with a note inside. I offered them a free Limousine anytime. I did do some chauffeuring when we ran short of drivers. I was only 20 years old and the Assistant Manager of Carey Limousine Service at the BHH.
    Had I heard from Paul, I would have offered to be their chauffeur and bodyguard and basically a “servant” for only room and board. Se la vie, It wasn’t meant to be, so I just ” Let it Be “. Speaking words of Wisdom,………………….

    1. Funny, I was going to ask what you thought about the dead Paul nonsense.
      Thats an amazing story!!! I am in awe of your life. There aren’t celebrities of that calibre these days to warrant such acts. Artists aren’t what they used to be.its disappointing.
